"It is with great regret we announce that Brian Dalton passed away on 28th November 2013.

Brian joined South Melbourne Rowing Club in 1964 along with Keith Tyrrell.  Becoming a club coach in the 1970s,  Brian became a state level coach for lightweight women at the Melbourne University Ladies Rowing Club in 1980.  He coached Australian crews at World Championship regattas in 1980, 1984-86, and 1990-93.  In 1986 he coached the Australian Women's Lightweight Four for the Edinburgh Commonwealth Games, and 10 years later coached the Australian Women’s Eight for the Atlanta Olympics.  Since that time, he has been a school coach, who, together with Peter Antonie, notably coached the 1999 Xavier College 1st VIII to its first victory in 51 years.  Brian was a life member of the club, and for his achievements at state and national level, Brian was inducted into the Rowing Victoria Hall of Fame last Saturday 23rd November 2013.

Brian was a well-known and much loved member of the Victorian Rowing Community and he will be sadly missed.

There will be memorial for Brian at Albert Park South Melbourne Rowing Club on Albert Park Lake this Friday 6th December from 1.00pm.

There is a dress code....wear a pink polo top or shirt and no socks with your shoes - just like Brian always did.

See you there."
